With all due respect, there is no information here. In order to help you, we need to know:

  • What kind of 'machine' you are asking about (desktop computer, laptop, tablet, etc.)
  • Who manufactured the device (Apple, HP, Dell, Toshiba, etc.)
  • What model is it (look on the manufacturer's identification plate on the bottom or back of the device or, in the case of laptops, sometimes in the battery bay)
  • What its serial number is (or its Dell Service Tag, if it's a Dell)
  • What operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OSX, etc.
Glad to help; just need enough information to go on.

Good Luck to You!

search dell serial number F4KPSF1


That number is actually a Dell "Service Tag" number. If you go to support.dell.com you can punch in that number on the first page in the "service tag" field and you can view all sorts of information relating to the computer. Serial numbers, drivers, installed components, etc. will all be available.

hello, i have lenovo h410 e6700 i wanna know the wattage of power supply and the pci-e version


The wattage should be listed on the power supply. To find your pci-e version try going to the manufacturer's website and download look at the manuals and look for Specifications which will give your configurations.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Lenovo Support" or "IBM" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and Look for Specifications. You might have to give your computer's serial number, etc. to see how yours is configured. It should be on a sticker somewhere on your computer's case.
